(G56) Depicted in a composed posture of rajalilasana, her left hand resting on the raised leg, the right elbow resting on an integral armrest, her head crowned with a high foliate diadem centred by the carved effigy of the seated Amitabha Buddha, her hair arranged behind into an elaborate high looped chignon, some tresses looped around the pendulous lobes and trailing in tendrils over the shoulders, with the rippling hairline framing the plump, angelic face with lovingly carved features, an urna marked in the centre of her prominent brow, between the dramatically rendered high-arching eyebrows, surmounting half-closed, slanted eyes, the lips gently pursed with the corners of her mouth slightly upturned in a serene expression bespeaking spiritual ease, adorned with an ornamental shoulder scarf and festooned with a multi-tiered necklace bearing a variation of the vajra symbol, with bracelets and armlets encircling both arms, the skirt of her dhoti secured around her slender waist by a brahmanic cord, enveloping her legs, the folds in the fabric in rhythm with the curves of her body, with both feet exposed, seated upon a wooden plinth.

Provenance: In a private Hong Kong collection prior to 2010.
